WAVY's sister station WVBT FOX43 has added Cozi TV to 43.2.
WANE is now using Aerial
WIAT, KXRM, KOIN, KLFY, WRBL, WJHL, and WBTW have the new website
WCBD has new graphics, set and open.
It appears that Nexstar pulled its stations' live streaming from the NewsOn apps and WatchNewsOn.com. It was replaced with "Unfortunately, ____ is no longer available on NewsOn. For ____'s coverage on NewsOn, you can tune into ____." or "We're working to add another station in the area as soon as possible" or a black screen. The stations' logos were replaced by the NewsOn logo.
It was only a matter of time.......
Bad enough that a lot of the legacy Nexstar stations still don't live stream their newscasts, now this happens. Something tells me they're on the verge of axing the streams altogether next as another one of many many cost-cutting moves by this station group.
What is the point? Do they think not streaming just drives people to traditional TV? It doesn't.
Well... that goes my list on my thread in the breakroom section.
In Nexstar's defense, live streaming really isn't that cheap. I mean, live streaming with broadcast quality cameras? Those don't come cheap, not to mention legacy media isn't as alive as it once was. Then again, Nexstar could've at least kept the livestreams of stations that already had them.
KRON, WFLA, WSPA, KASW, KXAN, KRQE, WBRE/WYOU, KLRT, KHON, KSNW, WFXR, KVEO, KWKT, WCBD, KTSM, WFFF/WVNY, WJBF, KAMR, WTVO, KSNT, KFDX, WJET, and WETM have the new website.
Of the Nexstar "legacy" stations only KVEO and KTSM changed their web address, they are now simply KVEO.com, KTSM.com
No Media General station has adopted the localportalhompage.net format so far.
I guess they figured out that the localportalhomepage.net format was just a stupid fad after all.
Yet the vast majority of Nexstar stations seem to be holding on to it for some reason.
It seems as if Media General bought Nexstar and not the other way around because if you notice not only did the former MG stations retain their websites but the executives of Media General (and LIN before Media General acquired LIN) has taken over Nexstar.
I actually think that Nexstar has changed for the better post-Media General merger and I hope the existing Nexstar stations (including the legacy stations) do away with "localhomepage.net"
You can still see Nexstar influence over the organization. From taking away employee benefits to cheap sets and graphics, to forcing stations to use Stephen Arnold themes.
They are based in Plano, and some of the Media General stations were already using Steven Arnold themes. Then again, I do see your point.
That's true but Nexstar is improving and all it needed was the Media General purchase for it to transform the company
I fail to see the improvement. Even with the MG acquisition, Nexstar is getting cheaper and cheesier. The micromanagement from Irving sticks out like a sore thumb on the Nexstar station in my neck of the woods.
Yet they’re news open creativity has exploded...
WNCN has the new website and a new name: CBS17 News and cbs17.com
